Gov. IIomtAJt ay lie has no fear
of the disintegration of the democratic
party. Neither has any one else who
can read the signs of the time.
Hon. John L. Tiscnon, wnator
from the eighth district, aged fifty
yean, died at the Revere house in
Springfield.Jon tho 17th. His disease
was pneumonia,
Advices from Washington are to
the effect that tho committco on vraya
and means very Generally acrcc that f
the incoino tax shall be abolished with
the end of the present year.
An Iowa paper proposes the removal
of the national canltai to Chicago, be
cause tho " burnt district" is buci a good
place to locate the government buildings
There is a better reason than that for the
removal. The municipal government
of Chicago and the national govern
racnt at Washington seem about equal
in corruption. If the two could be
lumped together, a big batch of wick
edness would bo centered in one place
instead of divided in two.
Under the new 'apportionment of
the national house of representatives,
Vermont and New'Hampshire each Ion
a member, while Massachusetts gains
one, making a loss of one for tho New
England states. New-York, gains one
member, Naw-Jersay two and Pennsyl
vania two, while Illinois gains five,
Missouri four, and so on. In tho polit
ical divisions of the Union the New
England states lose one member, the
central northern states gain five, the
southern border and slave statos south
of Missouri gain thirteen and the wost-
rn states gain twenty-three
The state legislature i making a
comraenaauie attempt at retrenchment
by striking from the pay roll tho names
of a considerable number of employes
whoso salaries are large but whose la
bors are light in tho extreme. Some
of these persons havo been drawing at
the rate of a hundred and fifty dollars
a month who have never done any sort
of work in the general assembly, and
have spent the most of their time at
their homes. Since late is better than
never, the pcDplo may congratulate
themselves that these legislative dead
beats are attended to at last.
Tni: New-York Herald sayH the
possum policy is evidently "no go"
with the democracy, and advises the
party managers to call a national con
vention lor a new departure. Let tho
Utrald take care of its new affinity,
Uen. Graut. Ho needs more nursing
man tne JJemocratio party, which ask
neither the advice nor attention of the
Isew-i ork. Jlerald. It is timo to stop
an uik 01 new departures in connccliou
witn the democracy. The patty has
planted itself fairly and squarely before
the pocple as opposed to all dishonesty
and corruption in public affairs, and as
unalterably in favor of a strict observ
ance of the constitution aud tho laws
by those, who administer the govern
ment. St. Louib is not proof against the
Alexis fever. On tho first intimation
of a visit from him, the great city gets
as much excited as New-York or
Koston, and proposes a reception, a
ball, etc. If tbe Russian prince isn't
careful he will go Jback to his native
eouotry in the samVcondition that tra
dition says a certain body of shaking
quakers were onoe. With the devil
for a fiddler, who wouldn't stop, they
danced their nether limbs off above
their knees. But .Satan wasn't more
cruel to the shakers than our big cities
are to Aloxis-they are determined his
heels (hall know no rest. We have no
doubt even the Sioux Indians will pro
pose a grand war dance tound their
camp Arcs, when they receive Alexia on
the plains.
That the present policy of the ul-
W-raoicai or Urant party is simply how
.o-.u 1U) now or power in the coun

SojiKof the memborHof the legislature
arc mowing dissatisiacttoii at tne no
lay of the special committee on Gov.
Palmer's lute message. Three of the
committee are democrats, the remainder
and majority, radicals. On Saturday,
a resolution, which we give below, was
offered in the house, for tho purpose of
getting the sense of tho members as
to the governor's course. The resolu
tion failed in its object however, as t
was referred to tho Eelcct committee :
WiiKRKAt. Lieut. General Sheridan of
the U. S. Army, on tho 29th of October,
upon the request ofcettnln citizens of Chi
cago, applied for U. S. troops to assist

wWlould city was under tho complete

cordially approvo tho temperate, dicniflcd
and firm action of Gov. Palmer, in pro
testing as no nas uono in nis communi
cation to tho president dated November
20, iHil, against lending tnose troops and
Hiainit their presence in said citv. for
tho purpose of exercising polico powers
in said city. zd. xnat unless tho said
United States troops aro necessary for
tho protection of United States' proporty
in tne city oi unicago, ana aro to bo
kept therefor that purposo slone, we
deem it the duty of tho governor to ro.

so 'as to rastoro harmony hotween there

and in state.

Then grasped a peu, and nroto and sent hit re

And from a busted gamtuiller li purchased die

And opened right upon the spat a bank ol
chckaluck,
For months ho prospered iuuJmmely In raking
In tho cash,
When to hit finances there came one day an
awful smash,
And just to show that wealth Iks wings, and
very ofien fliea.
I'll giro the circumstance In full, which liar
pened in this wise :
Zcke Blabl.ies was dithvsaslier upon that samo

Of bell crowned ftshlon was his hat, and coun
try Jeans his coat.
Iltll III r li tni h mmr"' f-eM1l"l all

He sold to a deck passenger n quarter's worth of

And stralghtwa) started for (lie stern, till Just

He aquatto 1 down upon the deck ajd went for
Juggles' bank.
Zt'if alapped his quarter on the ace, nnd rushed

Upon a scale which soon m vie Tim shell nut his

When Juggles aaw his bnk was broke, ses he,
" There's something wrong, "
And atralglitwav cursed a stream of oaths Just

Ho aworo that he could lick the Jake that pla)ed

And leaching forth for Zekel, took him In the

llEEClir.n ON AMNHSTT FOU THE SOUTH.
From the Christian iJaion.l
Thcrois one question awaiting congress
at its coming session which ought to ho
courageously met nnd mado an end of.
There may bo no popular clnmor to press
it, it may bo, possible again to postpone ac
tion on it without immediate and vlsiblo
ruinous consequences, yet every con-
deinands that action ho taken. Wc s-iv.
tlien, lot us havo dono with punishing tlio
south i let us no longer htimiliato thoso
who havo had so muny humiliations. Is
not tho nation strong'enough to risk tho
udmlssion of these men to full political
privileges '! Aro we not forgiving enough
to nnvo dono witn tlie inlllction of pains
and penalties? Aro wo not who enough
to ceuso trying to promoto peace by a poli
cy of exasperation ? There is ei-puclnl
reason tor decreeing universal umnesty at
this time. Tliu control of 'tho
national government wai ncvor
so secure to tho republi
can party. There is no longer nnv dan
ger of a reversal of tho measures that so-
cure n oiacK man ins rights. Towards tho
other groat source of disturbance, congress
nnd tho president have taken every meas
ure of reprsssion. Let them now turn to
tho other half of tho work. Thoy havo
struck at tho out-cropping evil weed ; now
let them deal with tho soil from whence
tho weed springs. AVo can never get to
tho root of tho Kuklux trouble, wo can
never rcstoro tho south to prosperity and
weld it In union of heart with tho rest of
tho nation simply by measures of repres
sion. There is a work of magnanimity
and trust to be dono us well, and It Is full
timo that the work was wrought. The
great measure should not ho marred br
any reservations and exactions. If five
hundred, or fifty, or flvo men are singled
out to remain under tho ban, tho practical
benefit of tho measure will bo greatly im
paired. Wu want it to sneak to the
southern people n mc?sago of free good
will. It can only bear that message
efloetivuly, as it is unqualified nnd abso
lute in its terms.
